Karen Eisenbrandt, PTA
Karen Eisenbrandt has held the PTA position as the employee who has been at Therapy West the longest. Graduating from Salt Lake Community College with her Associate's degree, she started her employment in 1997. A resident of Mayfield, with her husband, Gene, she has enjoyed working with home health in Sevier and Sanpete County, as well as helping people in the Community Living Center in Centerfield. Continuing education is important to her, as she has worked with almost every kind of need that requires physical therapy. Karen enjoys visiting her grandchildren (who live out of town), crocheting and sewing projects, camping and ATV riding. Most enjoyable for the couple is their activity in the Top Notch archery club.
"A strength I have developed," said Karen "is to achieve a comfortable situation and atmosphere with a patient so that person can accomplish and manage what they need to have improved mobility, strength and function at a level that enables them to go home or stay home. Our focus in rural areas gives us versatility and the background to deal with all ages, injuries and situations. We want to help people improve their independence."
